Presentation Description:<br />
Deep in every family history is a mystery of who we really are. The Forgetting River (2013) is an unexpected and moving story of an American journalist who unravels her Catholic family's long-buried Sephardic Jewish ancestry in Spain. As Doreen Carvajal searches for proof that her family was forced through the Inquisition to convert to Christianity 600 years ago, she moves into a mystical white pueblo on Spain's southern frontier to crack the secret messages left by hidden Jews- an ancient cry from the past. She comes to understand that her family's history flows like a river through time- and that while the truth might be submerged, it is never truly lost. <br />

Presented by Seattle U, Joel Benoliel & Maureen Benoliel, '71, KCTS9, Seattle Sephardic Network, and the University of Washington Sephardic Studies Program.
